Case Study: American AgCredit

Originally intended to be a 50,000-square-foot new national headquarters comprised of two separate buildings with the option to expand, the new American AgCredit building in Santa Rosa, California blossomed into a 120,000-square-foot work of art. Completed in March 2016, this “Building in Motion” is comprised of two organically shaped buildings surrounding a central courtyard that is bridged together on two levels. 

TLCD Architecture, also of Santa Rosa, worked with client and contractor (Jim Murphy & Associates) to bring the many goals into fruition – a flexible floor plan to accommodate rapid growth and change, collaborative space and transparency to reflect the company culture, and an energy efficient and sustainably designed structure.

TLCD served as both the architect and the interior designer making for a very cohesive approach towards the design. With flexibility at the forefront of the client’s goals, concepts like circulation, indoor/outdoor connection, space for individual concentrated work, places to connect, and flex space were all part of the project.

Creating the most agile interior possible to satisfy the requirements of the workforce at headquarters, different work zones were addressed throughout the floor plan. From open office workstations that convert from sitting to standing positions to demountable semi-transparent private office partitions, flexibility was the main objective.

“We were looking for a product that was easy to operate, energy efficient, very clean lines (and) modern. We are very comfortable using the NanaWall product and that was our ultimate selection,” says Don Tomasi, AIA, Principal of TLCD.
